Think about the one thing you love to do. It could be a task you perform in your job, in school, or in your everyday life. This is the thing that energizes you when you think about it, and motivates you to get up every day.

It's about using their amazingly successful, irresistible product as a platform for good.
For most people, it's scarier than dying. Of course, we're talking about public speaking, the most dreaded of all workplace activities.

That's what this episode of Awesome Office is all about - how to become a better public speaker at work.
